State Wide Area Network

Overview of the Project:

State Wide Area Network (SWAN) is going to be the key factor for successful implementation of e-Governance in the state of Manipur. This network shall have a Data, Voice and Video transmission and dissemination. The network shall be utilized for the inter-Departmental connectivity, multi-user and multi-service facilities, video conferencing, email, on-line application processing and query. SWAN shall enable better communication and information sharing to allow the officers to work more effectively, resulting in cohesive administration. The implementation of SWAN will cover strengthening of existing and future intranet at the State Secretariat, CM Secretariat, Government Departments in the state capital, District Headquarters, Sub-Divisions and Block headquarters with the existing and proposed gateway infrastructure.

Network Layers:

The entire MANIPUR SWAN Network would be built vertically on three layers of Network connectivity, which would be:

  • Primary Tier consisting of State Head Quarter (SHQ)
  • Secondary Tier consisting of District Head Quarters (DHQs)
  • Tertiary Tier consisting of Block Head Quarters/ Sub-Divisional Head Quarters (BHQ/SDHQs)



The Point of Presence (PoP) is a network distribution hub which is located in the State Headquarter (SHQ), District Headquarter (DHQ), Sub-divisional Headquarter (SDHQ) and Block Headquarter (BHQ). All the Internet/Intranet will be provided to various offices through PoPs. The SHQ, DHQ

and BHQ/SDHQ POPs will be located at the Secretariat Building, DC’s Offices and BDO/SDO’s Offices respectively. The District-wise distributions of PoPs are given below:
